    Episode 39: Amy Milne of Quilt Alliance

    Alternate Title: You Should Label Your Quilts...
    We've been tradeshow buddies with Amy Milne of Quilt Alliance for about a year now, and have had this interview in the works for just as long! We have been anxiously waiting to capture the beautiful and powerful conversations that we share in person for you, our listeners, and are so thrilled to introduce you to this incredible human and her work.
    Quilt Alliance seeks to document, preserve, and share American quilting heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities. We hope that you will feel inspired by today's interview to further value the beautiful creations and work that you create by documenting them for future generations!

    Episode 35: Bringing Up The Next Generation of Creatives

    We're back, after a recording mishap with our last episode!
    Immediately after meeting our two guests, we knew that we needed to introduce them to the rest of you! They're not only amazing educators, but they've both created after-school sewing and quilting clubs for their students!
    We were excited to drop this episode at a time of year that lends itself to planning the implementation of a creative program of your own! Whether you're a teacher, parent, or community member, we hope that you'll get some helpful tips and insight into what it takes to get started!

LeeLee Lauree ,

love you more and more

you guys are so real and do not make anyone feel left out.

Stan Lee ,

Love the content need to work on the mixing

Like the title says, the content is very entertaining and fun. As another review mentioned, there’s so much breathing noise that it’s super distracting. I have a hard time listening because of that. I understand this is a hobby but there’s got to be a way to fix this issue.
Good luck, and thanks for all the great episodes!
